Have the servants do it.

Feng shui or whatever and however it's spelled.

As eastern mysticism goes, I think it probably delivers on the claims. Not because a mirror is in a certain place and energy can flow, but because visual clutter imposes and distracts, some people more than others I'm sure, but less of it is better.

Pastor tries to explain God's evil towards man, fails

The atheist pwned him.

edutcher said...

A clean room, like a clean desk, is a sign of a diseased mind.

Sherlock told me that.

PS You spelled it right, Synova.

Synova said...

Alex, judging an idea by the limitations of any particular individual's ability to persuasively argue it is foolish.

Explain plate tectonics, vulcanism, earthquakes, tsunami and disaster? How could God give us a world that sets out to kill us?

Now create a world with none of that and what do you have? A dead planet.

Do the same with rain and wind and snow.

Do the same with disease and contagion.

Do the same with the human capacity for evil.

God makes the rain to fall on the good and wicked alike. "Rain" being a blessing here. Why does God let good things happen to evil people? Explain that, and you have explained the opposite.

I prefer life over death, chaos over stasis, free-will over peace.

So, western superstitions aren't good enough for us now, eh? We have to import superstitions from China now? What a crock. Superstitions are superstitions and Yoko is one of the homeliest billionaires one will ever see.

I happen to prefer my mind with dirty clothes on the mental floor and a half-empty coffee cup on my mental nightstand. What business is of Yoko's, I'd like to know?

Mary Beth said...

I want my mind full of interesting stuff.

Maguro said...

Free your ass and your mind will follow.

vbspurs said...

I'm a clutter-free person, but only in my house. My mind is gloriously full of tschokes.

...HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!!! I'm off for the day, but I hope all have a wonderful Sunday. :)

Cheers,
Victoria

Twitter is tracking every tweet you read, and every statement that you post to Twitter can be subpoenaed by the government and used against you in a court of law.

Twitter is also tracking the location from which you Tweet as a means of determining your location in real time. It cross-references that information with the content of your Tweet and can thus predict all sorts of things about you.

Apple is tracking people without telling them.

So is Twitter.

So is Facebook.

Evil companies all.

Victoria, I think it's tchotchkes. I love tchotchkes. Especially the little ones that are in unusual places that can pleasantly surprise you. Like a little gnome peeking 'round the mushroom stem.

Happy Happy Easter!

How does one arrange a room clogged from floor to ceiling with this guy or , better, this given the current state of things.

Coketown said...

I'll have piles of old newspapers arranged in a tall labyrinth with booby traps throughout.

Now create a world with none of that and what do you have? A dead planet.

Titan is as geologically active as the Earth. It just isn't situated in the right spot for life to have fully developed. However scientists speculate that it might contain some anaerobic life beneath the surface.

God has nothing to do with it. How do you know there aren't a million other Earths out there?

RLB_IV said...

I agree with Kirby. Experienced servants can work wonders. The upstairs maid is amazing!

Synova said...

Alex, To say that Titan is dynamic but not filled with life says nothing about what a planet without a dynamic nature would be, even right smack in the life-zone.

The old "why does God let evil exist" as proof of something is not simply illogical, it's *trite*.

To borrow the words of a philosopher... "Let me show you a world without sin."

Synova said...

I'm not suggesting any proof of God, I'm only pointing out the irrational nature of the argument that things that hurt us are *bad* and thus God either doesn't exist or doesn't love us.

Most of what hurts us is required by what sustains us. We couldn't do without it. A God who didn't allow evil would be far worse than a State that didn't allow evil. If a person isn't willing to accept a government that makes sure no one is free to do anything wrong, and can understand the necessity of allowing free-will and what goes with it, just where do they get off for condemning God for not making us perfect?

I hate that I can see more of her breasts than her face in her background pic. Poor Yoko.

vbspurs said...

Thanks, Kim! For the good wishes and the tschotchkes correction. Oy vey! (You knew that was coming).
